Our Staff Testimonials

We asked some of our staff members what they enjoy most about working at Robertson. You can read about their working life below.

  • Rebecca Laing

    Rebecca LaingTrainee Site Manager

    When I started, I was just looking for a job. Then I grew interested in a career in construction.

    Rebecca joined Team Robertson as an Admin Assistant at The Macallan, one of our biggest projects to date. Showing fantastic enthusiasm and aptitude, she quickly moved into a position as Trainee Site Manager, and is now going on to study Construction Management with her team's full support. "I was QA-checking the drawings and filing them, and then became interested in how things transferred from the drawings and onto the actual site. I learnt how to read the drawings and know exactly what's supposed to be there - sometimes I'm even able to find things that are missing, which winds the guys up! You get a good laugh with them."

  • Dale Friend

    Dale FriendAssistant Site Manager

    I hadn't expected Robertson to put me through the course, but they got it sorted - it's a great qualification to have.

    “Since I started working for Robertson Communities in 2012 when I was just 19, I have progressed from Community Attendant to Community Caretaker and I am now Assistant Site Manager. Ian Gibson, the MD, has been key to my quick progression at Robertson; he has inspired me to stick in and be the best that I can be.” As part of our Communities team, Dale was nominated for a BIFM Award, receiving the Highly Commended accolade. He has also received a Robertson Outstanding Contribution Award for his hard work and commitment. Watch Dale's video here!

  • John Hodge

    John HodgeAssistant Site Manager

    I've loved this past year. It's been a real learning experience, and a lot of fun as well.

    “In the past year I've come a long way and have learnt so much. In a big way that's thanks to the culture within Robertson, and the training that's been passed my way has been really useful. The SMSTS site management safety training, the SVQ in construction management… But my personal favourite has been the Appointed Person for crane lifts – it fits in with my structural engineering background.” Watch John’s video here!
